Failure analysis

Numerous events reported by the press, such as loss of performance, and outbreaks of fire due to batteries, have led to significant product recalls as a result of safety concerns (e.g. Samsung tablets, Hoverboards, etc.).

SERMA offers a unique solution consisting of failure (and construction) analysis of batteries in a secure environment. Our experts conduct detailed analyses by opening up batteries, chemical and physical analyses of components (e.g. SEM-EDX, ICP, DRX, etc.) and operations preceded by non-destructive analyses (3D tomography, electrical characterisation). Various technologies may be analysed in our laboratories.

SERMA offers its customers (including legal experts, lawyers and insurance companies) a retrospective analysis solution, helping to determine the root causes of incidents.
